From Nigeria's new rules for crypto to a possible reset in the tech ecosystem, we had quite a bit to discuss on today's Techpoint Africa Podcast.
Here's the low-down.
Last week, Nigeria's Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) introduced new guidelines to regulate digital assets, including cryptocurrency. As you listen to the podcast, you'd hear acronyms that rhyme with wasps and Dapps, but I believe Bolu was able to break some of it down.
If you are still interested in finding out more, watch out for Bolu's article later today, where he will be giving an in-depth analysis.
We moved on to what some Nigerians on tech Twitter are calling the great reset of the ecosystem. A tweet by Ngozi Dozie, CEO and Co-founder of Carbon, sheds some light and what the conversation was centred around. He touched on funding, remote work, valuations, mergers and acquisitions, among other things.
Chimgozirim talked to Eghosa Omoigui, Managing Partner, Echo VC and Victoria Fabunmi, Head of Investment, CcHub, to get their thoughts. They had some insightful takes, which made for an exciting discussion. It also nicely segued into the last talking point on our list.
Everyone wants to get into tech these days, and although the craze for a new and shiny toy is not a new thing, there's one consistent behaviour: fake it till you make it.
Oluwanifemi spoke to Victor Ekwealor, a growth expert and Adora Nwodo, Software Engineer at Microsoft, and they spoke at some length on the topic. However, one thing both can agree on is the need for discipline.
No person was harmed in the making of this podcast, although some shades were thrown. You can find the Techpoint Africa Podcast on all your podcatching platforms, including Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and Google Podcasts.
